New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: The Congress on Monday asked the Centre to share profits from low crude oil prices with people amid the lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic in the country which has hit the economy hard.

“It's not time for profiteering, it's time for govt to do profit sharing, caring,” the Congress said.

“BJP needs to realise that it has to stop solo profiteering; instead of 'stealing touch' it has to give healing touch,” it added.

Meanwhile, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said the people of India will together win the battle against coronavirus as it gives an opportunity to unite and set aside differences of religion, caste and class.

He said in order to defeat the deadly virus, people should forge one common purpose, for which compassion, empathy and self service are the central idea.

"The coronavirus is an opportunity for India to unite as one people, putting aside differences of religion, caste and class; to forge one common purpose: the defeat of this deadly virus. Compassion, empathy and self sacrifice are central to this idea. Together we will win this battle," he said on Twitter.

Giving this message of unity, Gandhi also posted a picture of two young children of different religions walking with their arms around each other.
